Toddlers

Children smiling.

At Lemberg, the children in our toddler classrooms can range in age from approximately 16 months to 2.8 years old.  Our toddler child care program consists of two classrooms: the Explorers and the Adventurers.  Our Adult to Child ratio for both of these rooms is 1:4, so take a moment to get to know the teachers who may be caring for your child.  You may also see our curriculum (pdf) for more detailed information on child development and our New Center page for pictures of the classrooms.

The School Year Program runs Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m, from the last week in August through late June.  All contracts are for full-time childcare and are paid on that basis (unless otherwise contracted for part-week care). However, the hours each child attends may vary according to the needs of the individual family.  

The Center is closed on national holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. A calendar of the school year is available to current families or upon request.

We also have a summer program so that you can have year-round childcare!
